Fuller’s Joey Fung Chosen for WLDI

Fuller is pleased to announce that Joey Fung, a distinguished faculty member, has been selected to participate in the Women’s Leadership Development Institute (WLDI). The WLDI is a highly competitive, year-long program aimed at empowering women leaders from across CCCU institutions.

The program, which will take place in Cedar Springs, Washington from June 12-16, 2023, is designed to equip participants with the tools they need to become effective leaders in their respective fields. Throughout the year, participants will engage in a range of activities, including a tailored shadowing experience with a senior-level leader on another CCCU campus, networking opportunities, and exposure to cutting-edge leadership literature and research.

“This is a tremendous honor for Joey and a testament to her leadership abilities,” said Fuller Dean of the School of Psychology & Marriage and Family Ted Cosse. “We are proud to have her represent Fuller and know that she will make valuable contributions to this esteemed program.”

Joey Fung is the director of the Travis Research Institute and an associate professor of psychology in the Clinical Psychology Department at Fuller. She joined the School of Psychology & Marriage and Family Therapy faculty as an assistant professor in 2012. Dr. Fung’s research interests lie in parenting, parent-child relations, mindfulness, and culture and child psychopathology. Together with her students and colleagues, she is conducting research on school-based prevention intervention for ethnic minority youths, spirituality and mindfulness meditation, and identifying non-traditional delivery systems of mental health care in international settings. Her work has been published in professional journals including the Journal of Family Psychology, Behavior Therapy, Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, and Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology.

“I am thrilled to be selected for the Women’s Leadership Development Institute,” said Fung. “I look forward to learning from other women leaders and developing the skills I need to make a meaningful impact in my field.”

The program is limited to 20-25 emerging women leaders, and registration is open until April 15, 2023. For more information on the WLDI and how to apply, please visit the CCCU website.
